UST ProForce VTS Shaft

After years of research and feedback from golfers, UST found that proper torque in a shaft, that would give you faster ball speed, as well as a lower ball dispersion. What does that translate into? Longer distances and a straighter ball flight.

UST has a 3DFitting chart that is very easy to use to fit yourself with one of their shafts. It is an easy to follow, three step process.

First step find your swing speed on chart. Next, find the weight of shaft you are comfortable with. The third and final step is choosing the correct torque for your shaft, fitted to your swing speed.

All you do is look on their chart where your speed and weight meet, and you have your custom specifications for your UST shafts.

This review is going to cover testing shafts on a driver, 3 wood, as well as Hybrid clubs.

After the fitting process was completed, the UST Mamiya Proforce VTS shafts were sent out to HQ, then installed in an RBZ Driver, RBZ 3 wood, and RBZ Hybrid.

With VTS shafts now installed, it was time to hit the course, for a testing session that would span over 12 rounds.

Driver

From the very first round I noticed a change in my ball flight. My drives were noticeably higher, but without a ballooning flight.

My slice was now becoming a controlled fade on miss hits. And, I was hitting more fairways. The ball was landed softly and rolled out just as it should on good drives.

The shaft was working extremely well. It was not too whippy or too stiff. It felt really natural with my swing.

With the UST Mamiya Prforce shaft installed, I saw a 15-18 yard increase off the tee.

My drives were flying longer and straighter than with my previous shafts. My misses were also not as extreme as in the past. They were much tighter from where I was aiming. As confidence grew so did my distances.

3 Wood

With a Proforce VTS shaft now installed, I did not really know what to expect with the fairway wood. I hit my first ball with the newly installed shaft, flying it 237 yards to a left side bunker.

I set up aiming at the left bunker, with several though processes going through my mind before hitting this shot.

One, I was not going to reach the bunker and secondly, I typically play a fade so if I aimed at the bunker, my dae would take over and miss the bunker all together.

To my surprise, my ball flew straight as an arrow, heading right at the bunker in which I was aiming. Of course, it made it to the bunker.

With this Proforce VTS shaft installed into my 3-Wood, my RBZ's were flying even longer. I can honestly say, I have never hit a 3-Wood this far before.

I can easily say as well that 237 yards was not my average distance before installing the Proforce shaft into my 3-Wood. A good shot for me before, was one with a carry of 185 yards.

Hybrid

The RBZ hybrid was installed with the UST ProForce VTS Shaft. Now, actually my "go to club" in the bag.

It became much easier to control shots. I can now use this club anywhere on the course from tee to green.

I gained more distance, as well as much better ball flight. With a few adjustments at set up, I was able to now control my ball fight. This is a huge plus.

Conclusion

UST Mamiya is on to something big with these shafts and easy to use fitting system; ensuring a proper fit for your swing.

All of the clubs in this test performed better, after being fit with UST ProForce VTS Shafts.

I gained an average 15 plus yards in carry. As well as being able to see my ball land softly and roll out, better than I have seen with my previous shafts installed.

If you are seriously looking for a way to improve your distances and ball flight, you should consider a shaft change to the new UST Mamiya shafts.
